More pumpkin painting

Today Demi painted her pumpkin (real pumpkin not the gourds). I put pictures of her doing this last year when she was a little over 1 year old. She is a lot neater now at two then she was at one.

This is D. painting her pumpkin.

I cover the pumpkin in tape except for the places that need to be painted. This year Demi even helped me put on the tape.
I gave her a brush and some black paint and let her go at it. I looked back at last years pictures and it looks like when she was 1 year old I gave her a brush with the paint already on it and no plate of paint but I can't tell for sure that is how we did it.
LOOK!!! Baby Zee painted her own pumpkin! Her pumpkin is a ghost. LOL!

This year Demi didn't let the paint dry all the way before she insisted pealing the tape off. That is why we have spots of smeared black on the pumpkin. It is Halloween Day so I didn't care about any paint smears. She was able to take off the tape all by herself this year. It kept her busy for a long time.
This is a picture of Zehira's ghost.

This is a picture of the other side of Zehira's pumpkin. I used her foot print to make it. Sorry the pictures are a little blurry it is late and I am too tired to take another one.Our table.
I read about Shauna's ghost and wanted to copy some for my house. T. made had fun making them up.

Here is a picture of one of them hanging on our front porch. They kept scaring me! LOL! I kept seeing them move around in the wind and thinking someone was on my front porch! Next year I think I will want to hang them a little farther away from the house. LOL! The orange light below the ghost is one of our Jack O' Lanterns glowing in the yard.

My children dressed up in costumes and trick or treated at our house. LOL! I let them go outside and ring the bell then I would act surprised to see them and give them some candy. Rob bought them the movie Meet the Robinsons So they watched the movie in costumes, eating pancakes for a late dinner, then had some candy. I hope you all had a nice Halloween.

What fun. Z look svery alert. D must have loved painting those pumpkins.

You're kids are awesome artists! And D is way more neat than Soph. I like to tell myself she is a "free spirit" who rather expresses herself by making massively messy projects. It's like "full contact art". and I LOVE Z's pumpking, I'm kicking myself for not having little B do a pumpkin too.
